It’s hard choosing a theme for your WordPress Blog! There are so many to choose from (over 4500 in the WordPress Themes directory as of this writing) and the demos always look better than the right-after-install version. Even if you buy a premium theme, there’s still a lot of customization to do. Personally, this site’s theme is a free one that I customized since I know enough PHP and CSS to be dangerous. 🙂 If you are looking for a theme, or know it’s time to change, here’s a roundup of Feminine WordPress Themes!
I found 6 compiled lists of dozens of themes, and since I’d never be able to put together something quite that comprehensive, I’ll share them here! I also have 5 designers who specialize in feminine themes and they’re just gorgeous. I know there will be some duplication between these eleven resources, but even with that you will have dozens, maybe hundreds of themes to peruse!
NOTE: not all themes are created by honest, reputable people. My friend Marianne (of DesignYourOwnBlog.com) recommends:
TAC Theme Checker: this plugin is necessary when you install a new theme from a non-reputable theme developer (or if you’re not sure!). It’s always a good idea to check it with this plugin to make sure the theme hasn’t been injected with any spyware or malicious code. I usually uninstall this plugin after I’ve decided on a theme and checked it.
TIP: Before scrolling through lists of themes, take a few minutes to determine what your priorities are for a theme. If your blog is photo-heavy, you’ll want to be sure to find a theme that handles photos really well. If you have a shop, or plan to soon, be sure to find a theme that will be compatible. If you’re like me and tend to use words instead of pictures, don’t get a gallery style theme! It will look very odd, trust me. 🙂
Okay, here’s the list!
- 90+ Beautiful Feminine WordPress Themes for Women: This is the largest list I found and comes from PremiumWP.com. Each theme mentioned has a demo screenshot and links to learn more and buy or download the theme.
- 75+ Beautiful and Feminine WordPress Themes for Bloggers and Businesses: This list, from NimbusThemes.com, reviews each theme and shares a screenshot image as well as links to learn more and buy or download the theme.

Remember, you get what you pay for, so if you aren’t comfortable with tweaking PHP or CSS, you may want to steer clear of a free theme, even though the price is attractive!
